Notes and Editorial Reviews

A leading figure in the development of opera buffa, Baldassare Galuppi was also much admired as a keyboardist, though his many sonatas largely remain unpublished and unknown today. Usually comprising two or three contrasting movements, these graceful and charming works juxtapose the melodious and the bravura, the melancholy and the ebullient, often recalling the music of Domenico Scarlatti or the young Mozart. Matteo Napoli enjoys a busy international career and plays on a number of highly praised Naxos recordings.
